Mike Alancourt (the bearded guy from the "Wow" video) is living his best life!
The 43-year-old man who went viral dancing to Post Malone's "Wow" got the chance to star alongside the rapper in the track's music video, and it's safe to say, Mike definitely made the most of it.
The Jacksonville native is shown throughout the video, which dropped Tuesday night (March 19), delivering his "Wow" choreography. In one shot he's shown dancing in front of Post and his friends, and in another, he's dancing in a backyard. The music video also captured the moment the 23-year-old rapper brought Mike out on stage to show off his moves to the crowd during his Arizona concert on Sunday (March 17).
According to TMZ, Post had already shot most of the track's music video but decided to make Mike a last-minute addition.
Mike's journey to Internet fame began earlier this month with a video of him dancing to "Wow" at a Jacksonville dance studio. Mike not only grasped the Internet attention with his smooth moves and even smoother beard, he also got the attention of some pretty big names. In addition to Ellen DeGeneres and Post liking and sharing his video, Will Smith also shared the clip of Mike dancing to his social media. "YOOOOOOO! Dude is SLAYIN’ this thing!!," he wrote on Instagram.
